I am running Windows 10 version 1607 (OS Build 14393.447). I get the error when I first sign into the Bible App and when I try to read a plan. When I first log into the app, it does not list any of my info (such as my reading plans). I don't have any bookmarks. 

Now for the way I fixed the problem. On the main window you have a few columns. "Verse of the day>", "ESV>" (this is the Bible Version I use), "Plans>", and "Bookmarks>". 

First thing to do is to navigate to any Bible verse. (Easiest way is to simply click on the Verse of the day to navigate to it.

Second, make sure the verse is selected for bookmarking by clicking on it. When it is selected for bookmarking it will be underlined with a dotted line. When ever you do this it will probably display error messages regarding bookmarks. Simply close the error messages and continue. (If you simply clicked on the verse of the day it will already be underlined.)

Third, In the lower right hand corner of the window you will see two links "Add Bookmark" and "Highlight". If you have a verse correctly selected to bookmark, they should not be greyed out. Click on "Add Bookmark".

Fourth, When you click on the "Add Bookmark" link, it will expand a panel on the left hand side of the window with the address of the verse, a "Title" text box, a "Labels" text box, a "Color" option, and a "Add Bookmark" button below them. Enter a title in the "Title" text box (I used "ErrorBookmark") and click on the "Add Bookmark" button.

Fifth, as soon as you click the "Add Bookmark" Button it will display the bookmark error message again. Simply click on the "Close" button. 

Sixth, exit out of the app. The next time you start the app (and login if you have not checked the "Remember Me" option) it will start up without error, and display your plans. You will be able to navigate and read Error-Free (at least without the bookmark error.
